A Teacher's Handbook of Death
Maggie Jackson, Jim Colwell



Some would argue that the teacher's job is to teach, and that hasn't changed. What has expanded is the teacher's role (and, often, by default, increasing responsibility) to meet students in the events we call life. While never replacing parental roles or responsibilities, the teachers have a stake in the support of children as they gather in school. This helpful resource addresses many themes, including: the physical processes which occur during and after death, reasons for illness, sudden death, or suicide, what actually happens to the dead body, what happens at funerals. There are strategies for speaking and listening, insights into the words and questions, and what is behind them, from children, and staying aware of their own needs and issues.
